The Race for the Áras

You are 15% ahead in the Opinion Polls in the race for the Presidency of Ireland with a few days to go so what could possibly go wrong?

I'm sure Gallagher wishes the ground would just open up!

Whilst Martin McGuiness's brilliantly timed ambush is unlikely to help him to get to Áras an Uachtaráin, it could help Labour's Michael D Higgins to win.

Not long now to wait!

It seems that Michael D Higgins is well head after only Hours of counting. McGuiness may have not received the votes he wanted but he clearly made a significant impact on the result.

Ireland seem to have elected the right man.

How the betting on Gallagher has changed since Monday's catastrophic debate -

Before the debate, they’ve told us, Gallagher was priced at around 1/3 on – meaning you would have won back €1.30 for every €1 you bet. After the debate, he went out to 5/4 – where you would win €2.25 for each €1. Now, he’s at 59/1. Bet €1, win €60.

Although it should be pointed out that Gallagher’s odds have been lengthening all morning – especially given how apparent it’s become that he will lose out in the overall running – that’s still a pretty hefty switch in odds.
